As with most projects, one of the biggest line items is the body. in my case it is the door skins for my 1985 Monte Carlo SS. Basically this car saw a lot of use and abuse before I managed to purchase it and one of the most abused items was the doors. I have options, I can score complete door shells or I can try to reskin them. Reskinning might be simpler but, one door doesn't really need that level of repair and the other door, well I could go that route but I am looking for something slightly simpler. What I am trying to find is a partial door skin. By this I mean a section of material that would consist of the lower section of the skin, starting at the sponson or that raised strip along the door and drop down to the lower edge where it returns around the inner skin. I have seen panels like this in the past but am having no luck in location who sold them or if they are still available. And yes, I could try to scare up a good used door but would have to find them from south of the Mason-Dixon line as anything north of that is rust belt territory and apt to be just as bad as what I am trying to repair. Any Ideas??
